Rather belated in adding this - but Damian Pinguey visited the pond at Chippenham on Saturday where, as well as a Broad-bodied Chaser,4-spot Chaser, Azure and Blue-tailed Damsels, he saw a semi-mature Black-tailed Skimmer. The first to be reported to me this year though no doubt there are plenty about - particularly in the CWP. Surprisingly there was no Emperor present as they are usually a constant feature at the pond at this time of year! This mixed weather is possibly having some odd effects on emergences.
